I believe the Open Skies agreement is coming online this week. Will Singapore Airlines SQ take advantage of this and launch any new routes from EU destinations (such as, SIN/UK/US) to complement their heavily booked Singapore/Germany/US, SIN/France/US ?
Does any body know what the list of cities they want to go to in the US via open skies, is ?
Singapore Airlines has been allowed as of date to fly the LHR-USA routes. However, due to an extreme shortage of aircraft, the airline is unable to fly the route. Singapore Airlines intends to fly the route once it receives new incoming aircraft.

SYD - SIN - ATH - JFK will work very well for the Singapore Air since the Greeks are starting to turn their backs on Olympic. Singapore Air has allot of respect from the Greek community and since most Greeks prefer to fly with SIN then this route will work well once more A380'S come online.!!!

Since Singapore is turning their nonstop flight from SIN to EWR with the A340-500 into an all business class flight I would expect some sort of change to their current SIN-FRA-JFK flight in order to add more economy seats. I wouldn't be surprised to see the A380 or 777-300ER somewhere down the road soon.

SQ was talking with Massport in Boston a few years ago about possibly flying there, so I know that was one city on their radar screen. IAD was also mentioned as well. Something from Boston to Asia is needed desperately, either via Europe, or via an Asian gateway on SQ to SIN.
ORD is also a city I wouldn't be surprised to see them start again.
